About

Do you find yourself plagued with disturbing, unwanted OCD thoughts and anxiety? Do you worry excessively that you might harm someone, accidentally offend God, or do something you believe might be spiritually or morally wrong? Do you worry that you might not be living in accordance with your true sexual orientation, that you might be with the wrong romantic partner, or experience fears of being contaminated? Do you find yourself engaging in repetitive checking, reassurance-seeking, or avoidance behaviors? Do you find that these behaviors give you momentary relief, yet ultimately make your symptoms worse?
OCD is a frequently misunderstood disorder that can be extremely scary, frustrating, and exhausting for those who sufffer. Although OCD can present itself in its more traditional forms, it is not uncommon for individuals with OCD to experience many of the thoughts listed above, accompanied with extreme distress and anxiety.
I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, including Exposure and Response Prevention, to treat OCD and OC Spectrum Disorders such as Social Anxiety, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Panic Disorder, and Specific Phobias. I am passionate about using evidence-based treatments to help you live a full and meaningful life.
